    I love the last one! But I’m biased since I have a cushion cut in a halo with a split shank πŸ™‚

    The last one, I’m not sure exactly why over the others though. I really like the side profile.

    I fell in love with the petite setting recently, but when I inquired about it they said it’s about 1.5mm and I just don’t think that’s durable for everyday wear. This would be a lovely choice though, if you’re planning on upgrading again in the future! Or if you don’t plan on wearing it all the time. The Embrace is also really gorgeous, but for durability I would certainly go for the last one. That and I love the side detailing and the split shank! Very pretty! 

     

    I actually happen to have a photo of the Embrace in different stone shapes that I saved to my computer a few months ago. The stones are Ashas though, not Moissanite, but same exact setting.

    I really like the first, though the split-shank is a close second in my book! Of course they are all gorgeous. Duh. πŸ™‚

    @6598731ssfse3: Ok, I change my answer to the Embrace πŸ™‚ Looking at the photos again, I think I prefer that one because the halo seems to sit alittle higher off the band than the others.

    OP: They are all gorgeous though- I’m not really sure you can go wrong here. Congrats on your anniversary btw. I see you are not a regular poster so I hope you come back to share real life photos when you get it! The new videos help a bit, but I think Moissaniteco’s only letdown (regarding thier website only) is that there aren’t individual reviews or customer photos/videos available for each product. Considering how beautiful the stones are, I think this could help thier business a great deal.

    Bronte –  It doesn’t just apply to halos. Any ring that has a thin shank (band) has a greater risk of being damaged than a ring that is 2mm or more in thickness because with less metal there is less support/strength. Especially when the thin band has stones on it. You could, for instance, be walking around at work and bump your ring on a metal filing cabinet and then the metal is bent. Or it could simply warp with time. The chance of this happening is less when the shank is thicker. Here’s a good thread I read recently discussing it. πŸ™‚

    My vote would be the last one…or the first one, but that’s just because I’m not a huge fan of very visible halo’s. I like it when they’re more subtle. Gorgeous rings though, you have excellent taste!

     I really like the first one.  They are all beautiful though, so you can’t go wrong.
